Beauty Black Book: Stacey Bendet's 5 Beauty Must-Haves

The Alice + Olivia presentation on Tuesday night was a fun house of style with a performance by Amanda Black and The Pieces (who were styled by wunderkind Tavi), a brand new line of A+O shoes and, of course, the infectiously delightful designer Stacey Bendet at the helm. Her spring '11 collection included flowing dresses, flirty skirts, beaded adornments, and candy-colored patterns, all paired with bright orange neon lips courtesy of MAC, and pouffy, downtown hair by Ric Pipino. The makeup was so spot-on we had to snag a few moments backstage with Bendet—lucky for you, she gave us her insider beauty tips on how she channels Alice + Olivia's laid-back-yet-glam French girl vibe every day.

Here are the five products that made her list!
